 Clocks slay time... 
time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels;
only when the clock stops does time come to life.  ~William Faulkner


  1. The gentleman second from right is a dead ringer for Prince Albert, though Albert certainly would never have posed so informally.

  2. I lived in a country for a few years where people worked and went to school for 6 days a week. I was young and fit, back then, but never felt fully rested. The family in your photo looked nicely dressed (just back from church?) but they were in no hurry to waste their precious day of rest.

  3. I was just about to say like Mark, that I am sure that is Prince Albert, and the lady standing with the small hat I am sure is one of Queen Victoria's daughters.

  4. I would love to know all of the details of this photo. For it to be an early photo of a royal family, I would think that the clothing would be of better quality. The "Prince Albert" in the photo seems a bit young to be the father of the young lady............

  5. If that's the case, gentlemen, that puts quite a burden the little rotter with his loyal stone dog, even without the alert gaze of his Nurse.

  6. This photograph even carries a little of the lavender tinge to it or maybe you have me seeing things. You usually do.
